Girl Be Heard’s educational program is designed for middle and high school students and taught by our Girl Be Heard Teaching Artists, senior collective members who have been through our program and received special training in Girl Be Heard pedagogy. The curriculum encourages young women to explore gender, race and class issues through theatre and performance.
Our curriculum develops writing, speaking, critical thinking and analytic skills as participants are encouraged to think about issues close to them and place them in a broader context. This approach makes learning more accessible and leads to better self-esteem and stronger performance in school.
This is a fee-based residency program in middle and high schools offered over 30-week sessions as an in-school course or after school program. For details, see Girl Be Heard Curriculum

they are about and learn how to work together as an ensemble. Our curriculum fosters healthy, confident,
self-aware young women who are engaged in their schools and communities. In the program, Girl Be Heard
members actively observe society and their role in it, reflecting critically, writing, and performing on social
issues that affect the status of women and girls around the world. Through these acts, they gain the
confidence to become leaders in their communities. Ensembles meet weekly over the course of the school
year, culminating with a performance at the end of the year.
